    Historical Marker Text

    Stiles Cemetery
    (One Mile West)

    Established about 1903. Site is on land then owned by early settlers G. W. and Lizzie Stiles.

    Plot summarizes much frontier history, as it holds graves of cowboys who died in accidents on cattle range; one Spanish-American War veteran; victims of shootings, rattlesnake bites, epidemic dysentery. Most were pioneers of steady habits and quiet lives.

    Already in use for many years, the 3-acre plot was deeded to county in 1920 by J. D. Wagner, an adventuring man who lived for years alternately in Texas and in South America.
